Presented is a completely hand carved shell cameo and 14 karat gold pin made
during the mid  1800s. This piece is most likely Italian in origin. The cameo
depicts a woman driving a chariot. This is  a beautifully carved shell cameo.
The frame or mounting is 14 karat yellow gold. The pin has an old  C style
clasp. 

The frame or mounting is 14 karat gold and has been tested with nitric acid
and is guaranteed to be  14 karat gold purity.  The pin stem is not gold. 

This piece is in great overall condition for its age. There are a few lines
in the cameo, but it is  completely structurally sound. A chip to the bottom
left corner has been filled in. There are no other  flaws. 

The cameo measures 1 3/4 by 2 1/4 inches and it weighs 13.4 grams.
